'Hustler' Publisher and Founder Larry Flynt is offering $1 million for any information about GOP POTUS Candidate Mitt Romney's tax returns.

The magazine mogul bought two full-page ads in newspapers (Sunday's 'Washington Post' and Tuesday's 'USA Today') this week, which offer "up to a million dollars in cash" for Mitt's "tax returns and/or details of his offshore assets, bank accounts and business partnerships."

"What is he hiding?" the ads ask. "Maybe, now, we'll find out."

Have You Seen The 'Obama Bench Press' a.k.a. The 'Barack Bear Hug'? [VIDEO + PHOTOS]

obama-bench-press

POTUS Barack Obama got a bear hug so big this weekend that people are calling it a bench press.

On Sunday, Barack stopped by Big Apple Pizza and Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., where he was greeted by Owner Scott Van Duzer.

"Scott, what's going on man," the president said as he walked in. "Scott, let me tell you, you are like the biggest pizza shop owner I've ever seen."

(Scott's 6-foot-3, weighs 260 pounds and bench presses 350 pounds, according to a pool report.)

"Everybody look at these guns," Barack said as he pointed to Scott's arms. "If I eat your pizza will I look like that?"

Then, Scott laughed and gave the POTUS a big hug -- which lifted him about a foot off the floor. [Check out the video, below.]

Later, Barack was still talking about the experience.

"I still wonder how he got these biceps, but what we know is that the guy's just got a big heart along with big pecs," he told the press pool. "So, we're very proud of him and we just want to say thank you for all the great work."

Did The Obama Administration's White House Beer Recipes Just Boost The Economy?

wh beer 2012 9 10

Last week, the Obama White House finally gave in to public pressure and released some much-needed information to the people of the United States of America.

That's right, we're talking about the White House beer recipes.

For those of you who sill aren't aware of this story, the White House kitchen brews its own beer. Using home brewing techniques and honey from the White House beehive, the chefs create a honey ale and a honey porter, which the President likes to share with guests. He also likes to take bottles on the road to give to supporters. And, after some serious demands online, the White House kitchen shared the recipes with the world.

So, what's been the reaction so far? Pretty good.

Colorado's Governor John Hickenlooper, who was a professional brewer before he got into politics, is excited that the White House is making its own beer, but thinks that "little bit less honey would be nice."

Meanwhile, online home brew supply store Northern Brew is already selling full kits for both recipes with everything you'd need to brew them at home. But if you'd prefer to buy your White House beer, rather than make it – a Utah brewery has announced that it'll be rolling out special editions of the two beers for just before the election. And, there's a kickstarter project to create a "White House Brewery" that would just produce the two recipes.

Who knew that POTUS Obama's beer recipe could boost the economy like that?

Did Nancy Pelosi Really Hit Mute On POTUS Obama's Conference Calls?

nancy pelosi 2012 9 7

Is there anything worse than those conference calls where one of the participants won't stop talking?

They really are the bane of the office jockey's existence.

And, it seems that even big name politicos aren't immune from the white-collar worker's annoyance, specifically House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Here's what happened: Bob Woodward, who's the paragon of American journalism, just published his 17th book, "The Price of Politics," which details the back and forth between the Obama Administration and Congress as they worked to rescue the USA's economy during POTUS' first term.

According to Bob, during the 2009 stimulus package fight, POTUS was on speakerphone talking to Nancy and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, when he began giving an uplifting speech. In response, Nancy went back to crunching numbers with Harry and hit mute so the President couldn't tell they weren't listening.

Of course, when asked about it, Nancy told reporters that she would never do that -- because, "when the president of the United States is having a conversation with the speaker of the House and the leader in the Senate — or just the president and speaker — it's a formal situation."

"Perhaps, because I might need a resource there," Nancy added, "but ... mostly, I clear the room when I'm talking to the president — I don't want anybody hearing one side of the conversation. I clear the room and I take notes and we have a conversation."

Hmm. We're not sure, but that does sound like a non-denial denial to us.

President Barack Obama Delivers Toothless Message At DNC [VIDEO + PHOTOS]

barack-tooth-2012-09-06-tooth

Thursday evening, we rocked out during the VMAs, then we got some organic popcorn and sat down to watch Barack Obama accept the Democratic presidential nomination.

It was all DNC fun and games at Glittarazzi HQ until Co-Founder Ali Lewis yelled, "Barack is missing a tooth!"

Now, Ali knows this feeling well since she got a tooth knocked out last year. (You can sort of see it in this miserable video.) But, despite the fact that we know Ali can spot a missing-tooth situation very well ... we ignored her.

Then, all of a sudden, we were all like, "OMG! Barack really is missing a tooth or chipped a tooth or something!"

One observant guy on a message board saw it, too. [here]

And so, we don't know what he said during his speech (we were too busy, trying to take pics and video of it - see below). However, we do know a few things: [1] Ke$ha was also missing a tooth Thursday night, which must mean it's in style; [2] NHL Capitals Player Alex Ovechkin is missing a tooth and nobody messes with him; and [3] this is really no big deal, but the poor guy will probably have to fight tooth-and-nail through the next two weeks, listening to missing-teeth jokes.

Speaking of jokes ... what did the tooth say to POTUS Barack Obama? Fill me in when you get back from the DNC.



Did you know? ... It's really hard to talk when you have one of those retainer-style (fake, temporary tooth) things in your mouth. Check out the video of Ali slurring [here] with Rick Santorum on the GOP campaign trail in Iowa. If she sounds funny to you it's because she lost a tooth - just like Barack- and got a temporary one before her permanent implant could be installed. That is probably why Barack didn't wear a fake tooth - because what is worse than a missing tooth? Slurry words on a stage.

Olympic Star Ryan Lochte Gears Up For His 15 Minutes Of TV Fame On '30 Rock'

ryan lochte 2012 09 06

Ryan Lochte has reportedly been dodging a multitude of offers to appear on TV shows since his Olympic success.

But, it looks like there was one show for which Ryan was willing to make an exception: one of America's favorite comedy shows, "30 Rock."

He's filming his cameo for the show this week -- and, we can only hope he'll be some kind of love interest for Tina Fey.

Not to be deterred by fictional TV, Ryan will also be an E! News correspondent for Fashion Week, covering the shows and parties in New York. Although we can't deny Ryan's hotness, we do have to question E!'s decision to have him cover Fashion Week.

Why, you ask?

Let us kindly redirect you to Ryan Lochte's "18 Fashion Rules," here. That is all.
 


DiD yOu KnOw? ... Want Ryan's look? You might want to read up on the new clothing line he says he'll be starting, here.

Was The Mystery Monkey Of Tampa Bay At The Republican National Convention?

alt

 
The Republican National Convention might've had a spy in its midst -- but not a member of the Obama campaign. 

The Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay, or MM, as his loyal supporters call him has been roaming the streets of Tampa for the past three years, continually exasperating trackers and making headlines across the country.

Though he wasn’t spotted at the convention, some of the rhesus macaque's followers are insisting that he was there. (Maybe that’s who Clint Eastwood was talking to during his speech?) Meanwhile, others are saying the MM just skipped out for the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina. 

As one of his 84,000 Facebook followers said, “Glad to know that MM didn’t waste his time at the RNC. Charlotte or bust, MM?”

DNC Hotness: Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman & Kerry Washington Prep To Take Democratic Stage

natport scarjo 2012 09 05

Clint Eastwood had better watch out -- he might not hold the title of "most popular" at a political convention for much longer.

Mitt Romney might have pulled out his trump card by inviting the actor to speak at the Republican National Convention -- but, as it turns out, President Obama has some tricks up his sleeve as well.

It has just been announced that Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington will take the stage at the Democratic National Convention right before the POTUS announces his acceptance of the Democratic party's nomination on Thursday night. (Also scheduled to speak before President Obama are The Foo Fighters and Eva Longoria.)

Not only are we excited to see these celebs ... we're psyched to see what types of furniture they might pull onto the stage with them!



DiD yOu KnOw? ... President Obama has an impressive number of supporters, including fashion designers, athletes and actors. There's even a Wikipedia page listing all of them, which you can find, here.

Amy Poehler Takes A Comedic Break To Talk About Domestic Workers

amy poehler 2012 09 05

We can't see any reason to dislike Amy Poehler.

The actress is not only incredibly funny and talented ... she also plays one of the strongest female leads on TV today.

So, it came as no surprise to us to see that Amy is just as fantastic in real life when we watched her latest ad, in which she asks Californians to vote to protect the rights of domestic workers.

Bill AB 889 would protect the state's domestic workers under laws that include overtime pay and rest breaks.

"Many people ask me how I balance it all and the truth is it wouldn't be possible for me to do all those things without the help I get in my home every day," Amy explains. "It's time these workers were treated with dignity and respect."

You can watch the commercial, below.



DiD yOu KnOw? ... Another "Parks and Recreation" star recently achieved the ultimate Internet fame by getting to host his own Reddit AMA. That's right! We're talking about the manliest of all men, Mr. Nick Offerman, a.k.a. "Ron Swanson." Read about some of his funniest answers, here.

Democrat Buzz: POTUS Obama Gives Harold & Kumar A Call In DNC Ad

harold kumar 2012 09 04

The POTUS just upped his "cool" game.

In a move likely to appeal to the college students of America, President Obama has filmed his silliest video yet.

It's a commercial starring himself, Kal Penn and John Cho ... a.k.a. Harold and Kumar.

Kal -- who's spent the last couple of years working for the Obama administration, on and off -- answers an unlikely phone call from the POTUS in which he's asked whether he's "on board" to host the DNC, and then proceeds to eat junk food and watch cartoons with his pal, John.

We're not entirely sure what any of this has to do with the election, but we're definitely on board!

Check out the commercial, below.



DiD yOu KnOw? ... Though you may known him as "Kal Penn," while working in the White House Office of Public Engagement, Kal went back to using his birth name, Kalpen Modi.

Did Nicki Minaj Just Call Obama Administration 'Lazy Bitches' As She Endorsed Mitt Romney?

mitt-romney-nicki-minaj-2012-09-03

Stop the press!

Is Nicki Minaj -- the gal that gave us other-worldly songs, like "Starships" (below) -- voting for Mitt Romney?

It sure sounds like it if you're listening to the glam rapper-singer on Lil Wayne's "Dedication 4."

In "Mercy," Nicki raps: "I'm a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney. You lazy bitches is f***ing up the economy." But, then, she starts talking about hanging with zombies in Miami.

So, to make a long story short, Nicki could just be quoting a Republican (or acting like she's down with the GOP), which means the WWW may never know Nicki's true pick for POTUS.

Unless, of course, she views Mitt as a "Starship" -- because everyone knows Nicki thinks that "starships were meant to fly."

Petition: People On The Internet Want Betty White To Speak At The DNC

betty white obama 2012 9 4

We'll be the first to admit that we love Betty White.

She's a national treasure!

But is she really worthy of making an appearance at the Democratic National Convention? Some people, or, better yet, a lot of people think so.

You see, Betty was one of the legions of celebrity Barack-Obama supports back in 2008, and she remains a vocal supporter of the POTUS heading into the 2012 election.

And, after the whole Clint Eastwood cameo at the Republican National Convention (with his empty chair/imaginary Obama sidekick), some people think the 90-year-old actress should address the Dems.

There's even an online petition -- "Democrats: Ask Betty White to Introduce President Obama at the DNC" -- that has more than 5,000 supporters and a "Bring Betty White to the DNC" page on Facebook with more than 25,000 likes.

Will it work?

Well, a similar online movement got the Golden Girl a hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live" back in 2010, but that had more time to grow and ended up gaining the support of more than 500,000 people on Facebook. Plus, the DNC is this week ... so, we're not holding our collective breath over here at Glittarrazzi HQ.

Still, we love her (since we believe she is still hot) and it would be cool.

Did The Obama Campaign Plant A Question For The POTUS Reddit Interview?

obama reddit 2012 9 3

By now, you've probably heard about President Obama's interview on uber-popular user generated content site Reddit last week.

The crowd-sourced Q & A, known as an AMA (Ask Me Anything), brought in a record numbers of visitors and took down the "front page of the Internet."

But, now, there seems to be some doubt about one of the users whose question was one of the 10 answered by the President.

The over-analysis of the Obama AMA began the same day POTUS posted. Most of the "Internet-detective work" has been regulated to the Libertarian sub-reddit and focused on a specific user. User "hmlee," who claimed to be an unemployed law school graduate, asked the President for advice on encouraging fellow young people to vote for him this November and what to hope for in his possible second term.

Nice question, though kind of a softball to appeal to youth voters. And the President gave a decent answer. So what's the problem? Users quickly pointed out that hmlee created his/her account only minutes after the AMA started, it was one the longest questions with a paragraph intro, and the user had commented elsewhere on being an intern for the Department of Justice. Hmm ... seems suspicious to us.

So, who is hmlee?

Well, it turns out she's Hilary Lee, who came forward when questions about her "authenticity" cropped up. Hilary explains that she created the new account because she was on a friend's computer and couldn't remember her reddit password. She admits to writing her question beforehand and pasting it into the AMA and that she's an Obama supporter. But does she work for the campaign? "I wish it were true because I could still use a job," she told a reporter.

Well, that all seems pretty plausible to us.

But, like most conspiracy theories, the "truth" won't kill it.
